Valley Pool and Spa Moves to New Location in Harrisonburg


HARRISONBURG, Va. (WHSV) -- After a devastating fire in late August, Valley Pool and Spa in Harrisonburg has reopened at a new location.

They are still on Neff Avenue, but now the company is renting a space right across the street from the original store.
Valley Pool and Spa moved into the new location two weeks ago.

General Manager David Boylen said they are working with the owner of the building and want to reopen eventually at the old location.

However, they wouldn't be able to do that by the next spring.

Spring is the start of busy season for pool companies, they may stay at their new location or find another.

Boylen said the building has at least $1 million worth of damage and that it may be $1.5 million.

A hazardous materials company is looking for leftover chlorine on site.

Next week, the building will be partially demolished so the company can come in and take the leftover chlorine away in sealed barrels.

Two insurance companies will now access claims already from the landlord and Valley Pool and Spa.

"It is a lot of work you know to go through the process accounting for everything. We are certainly thankful to our customers for their patience, you know we've had to push things back a day or two schedule wise because of the complications of not doing business from our regular location," said Boylen.

Boylen said insurance will cover the damage and he's thankful that the fire didn't affect nearby businesses.

The cause of the fire was an electrical fixture in the ceiling that went bad.

They think a ventilation fan may have caused the fire to start.

The new location is next to the HoneyBaked Ham on Neff Avenue.

They are carrying less inventory and focusing on products, including hot tubs, for the fall.
